Identify constellations and planets using Google Sky Map! This application uses the on-board array of sensors in a smartphone to determine the location and orientation of the phone and generate a real-time ‘map of the sky’. To identify objects, just hold the phone against the sky and the application automatically plots the current sky objects.
